Bavarian Head of Government Markus Söder announced several restrictive measures on Friday, November 19, including the cancellation of all Christmas markets in his region, one of the most affected in Germany by the new wave of Covid-19.

Due to the uncontrollable epidemic resumption of Covid-19, Bavaria is significantly tightening its measures. All clubs, discos and bars are expected to close for the next three weeks and this year’s Christmas markets will be canceled, Bavarian Head of Government Markus Söder (CSU) announced on Friday (November 19th).

Cultural and sporting events are only allowed with a maximum occupancy of 25% of spectators. “The situation is very, very serious and complicated,” Markus Söder said at a press conference in Munich. 90% of Covid-19 patients in hospitals are not vaccinated, newspaper reveals Welt.

Towards compulsory vaccination

In Germany, the vaccination rate in the south of the country is historically lower than in the north. Markus Söder no longer excludes compulsory vaccination: “For next year we must examine whether a new compulsory vaccination is necessary”.
